Claressa Shields Offers WNBA Star Caitlin Clark Boxing Lessons

Claressa Shields

Claressa Shields has offered WNBA star Caitlin Clark boxing lessons to help her out in her rookie season.

Shields is considered one of, if not the best women’s boxer ever and she also has become a pro MMA fighter. Given her experience in combat sports, Shields has trained people in the past and is extending an offer to Clark.

Clark was the first overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft and because of her, Shields says he has been paying attention to the WNBA.

“The way that girl is shooting I may have to give her a little foul or something,” Shields said to BoxingScene. “Caitlin is doing her thing. Shoutout to her and Angel Reese. They’ve brought so much attention to the WNBA. I’ve been paying attention since their little feud started.”

Although Caitlin Clark is one of the faces of the WNBA, she has been treated poorly by opposing players as she has been shoved to the ground and bullied on the court. With that, Shields says she is hoping that will help Clark stand up for herself.

“I want Caitlin to come sign up for boxing training with me. Not to teach her how to fight but to give her confidence and not let anybody push her over,” Shields said. “Yeah, you wanna keep your composure and stay calm but you also have to have something in you and about yourself that lets people know, ‘You can’t just do that to me.’ I think that when you have the confidence of knowing you can protect yourself, you don’t have to be fearful or scared of anybody. Caitlin is a great WNBA player but she’s a rookie and, to me, she’s being bullied on national TV.

“She needs some heart and she needs some confidence on and off the court. If she wants to come and train with me and hear my life story, I’ll give her a little bit of training and show her how to throw a good one-two. Maybe she can get some respect and stop these girls from fouling her because they’ll see that when they foul her, she’ll foul them back,” Shields added.

Whether or not Clark will take up Shields on her offer is to be seen.
